Julia & Noel: Teaser February 28, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 2:00 pm

Julia & Noel were married on February 7 at Lowdermilk.  We had such a fun time at this wedding.  Julia’s family lives here, but Noel is from Ireland (living in Massechusetts now).  I tell you what, you need to go to an Irish wedding some time.  Those were the friendliest and most enjoyable guests I think I’ve ever been around.  It was a joy to shoot their wedding.  We didn’t have much time to get portraits of them both, but I did get a few.  We’re looking forward to a portrait shoot some time in the future!






We Wed Brunch! February 27, 2009

I had the honor and pleasure of attending the We Wed Brunch at Miromar Outlets put on by Kelly from Weddings by Socialites ( Kelly was so generous to put so much time into the workshops (Marketing to the 2010 Bride) and the amazing brunch. I learned a lot, even though I wasn’t able to make it to the first two workshops. I love meeting other wedding vendors in the community.  I want my brides to have the best possible experience on their wedding day, and great vendors make that possible.  Thanks, Kelly, for planning this event for us!

I’m still making my way through Carlos and Jenny’s engagement session, and I found this little gem tonight. It makes me smile inside.



Sarah and Rachel: the shoot February 25, 2009

Filed under: Portrait,Uncategorized — Deb @ 4:53 pm

I had the pleasure of capturing sisters Sarah and Rachel a few weeks ago. I posted just two shots the other day. I wanted to add a few today. Sarah and Rachel are two really amazing people and I was so delighted to spend the afternoon with them.  I also had the pleasure of working with Heidi von Korff – she has an excellent eye and helped me with poses. The slightest changes make the biggest differences!







Jenny and Carlos: Teaser February 23, 2009

Filed under: Engagement,Uncategorized — Deb @ 5:54 pm

When it rains, it pours. We had an uber-hot session on Saturday with one of my really good friends, Jenny, and her amazing fiance, Carlos. I am so blessed to be shooting their wedding in June. I wouldn’t miss it for the world! Jenny and Carlos are probably two of the best dressed people I’ve ever shot. Jenny’s ridiculously cute cardigan is from anthropology. Drool.


One thing I noticed from this shoot and the shoot with Sarah and Dane, is that couples have “sides” – they tend to stand on one side of each other. I wonder if there’s been a study on this. We had a really awesome time, and I can’t wait to post more photos!





Sarah and Dane: Teaser

Filed under: Portrait,Uncategorized — Deb @ 5:45 pm

We got to hang out with Sarah and Dane just one week before they moved back to New York. We even got to hang out with them one night at the county fair.  It was very sad to see them go, but we had an absolute BLAST with them while they were here. I just had to post a few photos before I finish editing all of them.





Arabesque of Naples February 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Deb @ 4:49 pm

Matt and I are investing in stationery for our business and we decided to look at Arabesque of Naples. Arabesque specializes in all kinds of stationery from invitations to notebooks to thank you cards. They have an entire wall of portfolios with many different invitation designs. If you are getting married and haven’t chosen your invitations yet, you simply must make your way down to Arabesque on Fifth Avenue (right next to Altin’s Cafe). Their letterpress invitations are stunning. They also have engraved, thermography, and hand caligraphy invitations.


Matt and I walked in and were graciously greeted by Sheryl Sashin. We told her we were looking for letterpress business cards and stationery and she showed us the examples from Crane’s, Elum, Smock, and Julie Holcomb.  Nice stationery is one of a kind and has a certain feel to it. The business cards we looked at were as thick as a piece of gum and had a simple elegance that cannot be matched.  Elum and Crane’s paper is made from cotton and Smock paper is made from bamboo – both eco friendly materials.


We are still deciding on the style and design of our new business cards, but I will post pictures of them as soon as we have them. And in the mean time, you should check out Arabesque on your trip to downtown Naples. They are located at 350 Fifth Avenue South.
